Strategic Plan

The Academy's Board of Directors gathered in February 2017 and endorsed a new vision, mission and principles as a part of the organization's Second Century initiative — expanding the influence and reach of the Academy and the nutrition and dietetics profession.

Members are an integral part of this process and will continue to be informed as the Board discussions continue throughout the year to finalize the new strategic plan that will carry the Academy into its second century.
